Wall and Floor Tiling Level 2 Diploma at Highbury College

Course description

This programme is designed for those students who have already completed the Level 1 programme in Wall and Floor Tiling and wish to progress onto the Level 2.

Course content

It allows learners to learn, develop and practise the skills required for employment and/or career progression in Tiling.

It covers the following skills:

  • preparing backgrounds for tiling
  • forming sand and cement screeds
  • tile wall surfaces
  • tile floor surfaces

Functional Skills will be a mandatory part of your programme and followed at the appropriate level. These will provide you with the practical skills to work confidently, effectivey and independently. They open doors to learning, to life and to work. These skills are valued by employers and further education and are a platform on which to build other employability skills. Better functional skills can mean a better future - as learners or as employees and in everyday life.

Functional Skills are essential skills in English, Mathematics and ICT that enable everyone to deal with the practical problems and challenges of life - at home, in education and at work.

They reinforce skills in communication, problem solving, listening and time management. For example, they help us recognise good value deals when making purchases, in writing an effective application letter, or when using the internet to access local services or online banking. They are about using English, Mathematics and ICT in everyday situations.
